I spent my time in college reading great books and learning how to write. While at the time this seemed great, I am now learning that it was a mistake. What I should’ve been learning was how to invest.

According to investor-oriented forum SumZero, Johns Hopkins produces the 12th best investors in the nation. Their methodology for this study is a bit wonky; they calculated the annualized return of users’ stock picks, then sorted them by their alma maters. Johns Hopkins’s investments boasted a whopping 40.4% return — pretty impressive, though well behind the University of Virginia’s 53.8%.

The Hopkins Hub proudly noted that the school ranked ahead of both Harvard and Columbia. Fourteen percent of last year’s graduates took jobs in financial services and investment banking, the second most popular area of employment. In other words, Johns Hopkins isn’t just for doctors anymore.
